Need for Speed franchise switching developers

Criterion to take over from Ghost Games on the racing series

Posted on

Publisher EA has said that the Need for Speed franchise will be developed by Criterion going forward, taking over from Ghost Games.

Ghost Games in Gothenburg is set to become EA Gothenburg once again. The studio will refocus as an engineering hub supporting development across EA's portfolio. Layoffs are possible.

Ghost Games has been working on the Need for Speed series for the last four games in the series. Criterion is known for Burnout, and had previously developed 2010's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and 2012's Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
